We fund life saving medical research to beat the world's biggest killers.


In May 2019, I lost my dad due to a sudden heart attack. He was just 58 years old and I was only 14. My 16th Birthday is the 5th of February and this will be my second birthday without my dad. As a family, we thoroughly enjoyed attending RBS 6 Nations matches at Murrayfield and a few years ago we were lucky enough to watch France v Scotland in Paris. My dad always talked about going to Twickenham to watch an England v Scotland match, he never achieved that dream.

As a fundraiser and in honour of my dad Tom Thomson, I have decided to virtually cycle from our home in Ayr to Twickenham, a total of 710.1km or 441.2 miles.This means I will be required to cycle 32 km or 20 miles each day and my aim is to arrive no later than 1600hrs on Saturday 6th February the day after I turn 16.  

This fundraiser is for BHF Scotland, Wellington School Ayr and most of all my much loved dad TOM. All donations will be gratefully received, along with your support to keep me going over the next 3 weeks. Thank you for visiting my page,
